Also, which package did you purchase and what did you do about music for the ceremony and cocktail hour? I have so many questions...any info would be great! Thanks and congrats again!
Thank you! For centerpieces, I brought vases from the dollar store and left them there. Who is your wedding coord.? I left 7 or 8 of them, I told Dulce and Lorena to let future brides use them, so ask if they still have them, you can use my name. Then I went downtown, to a florist (my husband is fluent in Spanish) and bough 6 callas for each vase. You can also go to Walmart, they had really nice roses for fairly inexpense also. I also brought candle votives and put them around the center of the table, I left them too but I am not sure what happene to them...but to be honest jsut vases with flowers is nice. i had my reception in the North Solarium and the beach is the background, so something so very simple is beautiful. I am not sure how many tables you are going to have but I did see a few random vases in the weddings office, maybe you can ask if they have more. I chose the complemantary package. I used DJ Mannia and he provided music for the ceremony and reception. For the cocktail hour I didnt have music and to be honest, noone said a thing about it. I am glad that I didnt waste the money for it. However, depending on your location of your cocktail hour, you can just bring ipod speakers and an ipod, that is what we did for all the other events that we hosted.
I know how you all feel about the what if's and can I's so please ask me...
